Our Organization

Who are we?

CAWS is a no-kill, volunteer and foster-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is working with the community to help animals. As Utah’s oldest animal rescue group, our ongoing rescue, foster, education and adoption programs help animals whose time is up at shelters, those who are abandoned, and as our resources allow, those whom their owners can no longer keep.

We are committed to saving the animals that are often overlooked and under-appreciated at local shelters; this includes, the sick, injured, senior and neonatal kittens and their mothers. We are dedicated to helping those special needs animals find their forever homes.

Our rescue and adoption process is sustainable, innovative and effective. In 2015, we rescued and adopted out over one thousand dogs and cats from shelters throughout the state of Utah.

I love this cute Mojo “Gibson”. He’s bigger than he looks. He still has a baby face, but his body is “big boy”. That belly is begging to be kissed.
